Could I hope to reach a dozen minds, and warm a dozen hearts, which had otherwise remained congealed, or at most received passively the little stream of happiness which a naked, external world affords them, without any corresponding efforts to form a world of their own could I be the means of enkindling in them that love for everlasting progress towards perfection, which is so essential to the world's true happiness and their own could I thus aid in setting in motion an under-current which should, in due time, restore to us Eden, in all its primitive, unfallen beauty and excellence, how should I be repaid for these labors!
